Instrument and VFR
I was on a business trip to Tucson and wondered, what I could do over the weekend. Since I am currently a student pilot in Germany, I contacted Kelly Stites and asked her, whether I could fly - with an instructor - her cool Piper Cherokee. She immediately responded and in the end of May I flew that plane together with Josh, her flight instructor who was on duty that weekend. Great experience, wonderful flight through Arizona sky and great training effect ... Josh is a wonderful tutor and it was a an outstanding experience for me to get a flight lesson on the Piper PA-28 with him (I usually train on an Aquila A-210).
Kelly's Aviation is an outstanding flight school! The level of dedication that the owner/instructor puts into developing safe aviators is astounding. I couldn't have chose a better place to conduct my training. I HIGHLY recommend this flight school to anyone who wants to learn how to fly.
Kelly is amazing! Talented, friendly, professional, excellent pilot and instructor. She truly cares about each student she teaches and just loves to fly. Her reputation around Tucson is simply amazing and well deserved! I asked several pilots who to get my training from and Kelly was the first name out of everyone s mouth. I find myself wanting to show up early and stay longer with each flight. Though everyone when they first start is looking to solo, I enjoy my time so much with Kelly next to me because I am constantly learning from her. I can not say enough about her in this short review. If you have ever thought about learning to fly, you want to go to Kelly s Aviation.
In the process of getting my Private Pilot's License I used five different instructors. Two of them I would never recommend even to my enemies, two of them were ok, only Kelly was awesome. By far the best flight instructor I have ever had. Her teaching style is calm and patient. She is always willing to work her butt off for her students to ensure they achieve their goals. Don't go anywhere else in Tucson, this is the real deal!
I took instruction with Kelly from day one all the way up to a few days before the check ride for my VFR private pilot license. She is extraordinarily patient and easy to work with (both with scheduling and instruction). She is very effective and efficient with her lessons. I would highly recommend taking instruction with her if you're looking for a thorough and success-oriented instructor.
